Default How high?

I'm setting out a protein feeder and want to know what the recommended height should the feeding tubes be off the ground?

I have mine at 42 and don,t have any problems with it.It takes a large hog to rear up to reach it. Yearling deer have to stretch but adult deer have no problems

You sure like those 2 word thread titles!

Ours are at 38 - 40 inches at the ranch

One buddy also uses trough feeders and seems to like them more.
